One of the most prominent festivals of the Islamic community, Eid ul-Fitr or Eid al-Fitr (Eid al-Fitr) is widely celebrated all over the world. On this day, the month of Holy Ramadan i.e. the month-long fast ends. According to the Islamic calendar, Eid is celebrated on the first date of 10th Shawwal after the month of Ramadan. Sweet Sevaiyan is made on this day, so this festival is also known as ‘Sweet Eid’. This year Ramadan Eid can be celebrated on 14 May in India and a day before on 13 May in Gulf countries. It depends on the sight of the moon. If the moon is seen on 13 May, then Eid will be on 14 May.

Eid ul-Fitr or sweet Eid was originated by Prophet Muhammad and has been celebrated by the Muslim community for many centuries. This day is celebrated as the first day of the month of Shawwal, which comes just after the conclusion of Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. According to the Islamic calendar, Eid ul-Fitr begins when the first ray of light falls on the ground from the crescent moon on the first day of Shawwal. And if the moon is not seen due to the weather conditions, then Eid is celebrated the next day.
Many times it also happens that the moon of Eid is visible on the 29th day. When the moon is visible on the 29th day, it is only 29 and Eid is celebrated the next day and if the moon is visible on the 30th day, then the fast is 30 days and the next day is celebrated as Eid.
On this day, Muslims wear new clothes and go to mosques to offer namaz. They offer a special religious prayer on this day which is known as Salat.
